GoDaddy is the largest domain registrar and one of the largest web host. It hosts millions of websites and offers other services too. A member of the poular hackivist group Anonymous claimed the responsibly of the massive DDoS attack that took down GoDaddy servers. This has not only affected GoDaddy’s own website but millions of other sites too.

According to reports, not only GoDaddy-hosted websites are down but also such sites which have their domains registered with GoDaddy. Even the email and phone services offered by GoDaddy were malfunctioning.

A member of Anonymous, AnonymousOwn3r has stated on Twitter that he is responsible for taking down GoDaddy websites. He said that he did so in an individual capacity and that his action didn’t represent Anonymous. He also said that he took down the sites simply to show how vulnerable and insecure they were.

Meanwhile, GoDaddy has been working to resolve the issue. According to a new update by the domain registrar, “Most customer hosted sites back online. We’re working out the last few kinks for our site & control centers. No customer data compromised.”

Interestingly, Anonymous is trying to distance itself from the attack. Soon after the attack, GoDaddy users started criticizing the attacker, citing how much trouble such an attack has caused. Evidently, Anonymous didn’t want to associate itself with the actions of a single individual and clearly stated that it wasn’t responsible for the attack.
